Cutting Body Fat Diet...

I want to drop a few pounds to get my BF% into 7ish range, im guessing it is 9 or 10ish right now. I am 6 foot male, 25, 185 and I do Grant's Hybrid Crossfit Strength twice a week, 3 times a week 2 hour BBJ, and 1 time a week 2 hour MMA and easy yoga on off day. Diet looks like this on average

(Today)

6:30AM
5 full eggs
half cup blackberries
small handful of pecans
cooked in Olive Oil (all mixed together- really freaking good)
2 cups black coffee
est: 650- 700 cal

11:30
Huge bowl Spinach (4 cups?)
cherry tomatoes
sliced bella mushrooms
sliced cucumber (5 or 6 slices)
Chicken Breast
Olive Oil Dressing

Mix of Almonds, cashews, and macadamia nuts

Small Apple

est: 600 or 700 cal

1:00 pm
Green or Black Tea

5:00
2 pieces of Salmon
Eggplant cooked with Onion (olive oil spray)
2 cups broccoli
few almonds for fat

est: 500

BBJ 6- 8:15

8:30
7 or 8 oz of chop steak trimmed on visable fat. (usually have 2 chicken breasts with salsa!)
est: 300

I have been eating paleo for awhile now and really enjoy it. Also I have tryed Zone for a few months and I liked it, BUT I was always hungry and I was going nuts measuring food and counting nuts- so now I refuse to WAM although I always try to eat protien/fat/carb to dent insulin. I usually do a 16- 19 hour IF 2 times a week as well. On those days my caloric intake is probably about 300- 400 less. So it looks like im averaging 2300 calories. This is a LONG term diet, its how I eat. Id like to drop to high 170s and 7ish% BF. Current lift: DL 315, BS 300, Bench 265, Shoulder Press 160. Last Fran was 4:30ish. I dont do as many met cons now- the MMA and BBJ do enough of that!

Thanks in advance

Re: Cutting Body Fat Diet...

If that's a typical days diet it doesn't look too bad so reducing serving sizes a little should get you down to 7%. I should point out however that your current BF% is already quite low and getting any leaner may lead to low energy levels and a drop in performance.
